Environmental packaging specialist Biopac has expanded its product range with the introduction of a new range of compostable containers with clear RPET lids, which are said to be suitable for food packaging.

The new compostable containers are available in a variety of formats, including round, square and rectangular bowls with variable depths, and are freezer, microwave and oven-safe.

These packages claim to offer good thermal qualities to ensure the food remains hot and are best suited for food outlets serving hot and cold food. They also offer good stackability and denesting features.

Designed to fit securely to keep food well-preserved and eliminate leakage, the heat-resistant and fully recyclable clip-on clear RPET lids also ensure that there is no transfer of taste.

The company is offering a choice of either flat or domed lids, which are crystal clear to offer customers excellent food visibility.

"Our new range is unbleached, which means it retains the natural colour of the sugarcane fibres."

Biopac technical director Mark Brigden said: "Our new range is unbleached, which means it retains the natural colour of the sugarcane fibres.

"The containers are ideal for cafes, takeaways, streetfood traders and caterers serving hot and cold food.

"They are in stock now and are already proving popular with a number of our clients."

Established in 2002, the company is considered to be the leading developer and supplier of eco-friendly packaging and catering disposables in the UK.
